THIRD UPDATE: Upgrade the firmware and software and it will work fine.
How-to update: [...]
The files: [...]
If you end up with any discs that it won't close or it has errors while closing, just use ISOBuster.

UPDATE: The laser has a very poor error tolerance. DVDs must be in PERFECT condition for playback and recording. Mine has some tolerance with the first half of a DVD but the second half must be flawless.

I've made about a dozen DVDs with this DVDR. All of them were to get shows off of my DVR. I haven't tried recording scheduled shows. Using the S-Video input works great and looks sharp. I haven't used the firewire input yet but I plan on it working out well. The DVDR makes a nice menu for your recorded shows and auto inserts chapters. The auto chapter tends to insert chapters when the video is quiet, or after a certain period of time (10 minutes or less.) If you want you can put in your own chapters too. You can also specify a picture from the show for display on the menu, so there is a picture and a title of the track. I'm also quite happy with the editing option available for using a DVD-R or DVD+R. There are more editing options if you use a DVD-RW. It also plays NTSC and PAL. I'm guessing it also plays NTSC and PAL variants too.

Disappointments: I recorded a disc that had an error on it. There was a defect on the DVD itself. Because of this, the DVDR was unable to close the disc. I can still play it on the DVDR but another DVD player and even my computer cannot recognize the DVD. When editing the DVD you cannot use any of the play functions like fast-forward, rewind, pause, etc. You have to re-load the disc to get out of editing mode to use those functions again. CANNOT record onto dual layer discs.

I recently purchased the Philips DVDR3390 due to the low selling price and brand name. I also have a Philips brand DVD player and Plasma TV.

Before buying, I read countless reviews on Amazon about this DVD-R and learned a few things. Before I recorded a single frame, I visited Philips online and downloaded the latest firmware upgrade. After burning it to CD-R and playing it in the DVD-R, the upgrade completed.

I used Verbatim DVD+R discs to burn the programs off my DVR and 80+ hours of burning later, I have not encountered a single burn issue.
I have not used the player to edit programs, burn to DVD-RW discs or change the auto-generated menus, just "burn, finalize and go."

After playing back several of the burned discs on other DVD players, for what I require of it, I can safely say that I am rather pleased with the Philips DVDR3390. :)

This might be the biggest pile of electronic junk I have ever bought, and I have bought a LOT of electronics. This thing powered up but that's about the extent of it. It NEVER functioned properly...stopping recordings on it's own in the middle of a recording, saying disc was not recordabe...then recording on it (for a while) before stopping the recording in the middle of the show! I trashed a boat load of DVD's trying, praying, hoping this machine would come through but it was a dog that never performed one trick...except maybe play dead.
